This paper presents a plugin that adds automatic speech recognition (ASR) functionality to the WaveSurfer sound manipulation and visualisation program. The plugin allows the user to run continuous speech recognition on spoken utterances, or to align an already available orthographic transcription to the spoken material. The plugin is distributed as free software and is based on free resources, namely the Julius speech recognition engine and a number of freely available ASR resources for different languages. Among these are the acoustic and language models we have created for Swedish using the NST database.
